DCJCC Jewish Volunteers D25 2007







Each year the DC Jewish Community Center organizes a massive community-wide volunteer effort at Christmas to reach out to the city's neediest citizens.
I have been covering it (pro-bono) since at least 1994.

These photos are from the Community For Creative Non-Violence (CCNV), Change Inc, DC Central Kitchen, Miriam's Kitchen, and the DCJCC's blood drive.

Healing Clowns (Serious Silliness)

















I had the happy occasion to photograph a marvelous troupe of clowns who are dedicated to healing sick children... a merry minyan of dazzling foolishness.

A smile does indeed lift some of life's dark glooms.

Merry merry to all

Autumn observed closely











A selection of the thirty-five interesting fallen leaves that I collected recently on my walks in Glencarlyn Park.
